The Quebec Federation of Home and School Associations (QFHSA) wishes to encourage tomorrow’s scientists by supporting today’s students in developing and nurturing an interest in science.
By providing additional science experiment materials/equipment to high schools in the regions, through our Youth Exploring Science program, QFHSA hopes to encourage science activities proposed by your science educators.
We invite secondary schools in the regions to share with their science teachers an opportunity to propose a science activity they would like to conduct with their students in the 2019-2020 school year and submit their project to us. The chosen proposals will receive an $1000 micro grant for in equipment / materials with which to conduct their experiment/ project.
The proposal should include: a description and outline of the project, the number of students likely to be involved, and a detailed list of equipment / materials required for the project and links to where to find them.
Proposals should be sent by February 15, 2020 to:
Carol Meindl, Youth Exploring Science
Quebec Federation of Home and School Associations
3285 Cavendish Blvd, Suite 560
Montreal, QC H4B 2L9
Teachers know best what activities will interest their students the most. We look forward to playing a role in getting your students excited about science.
